Tourists visit this region for one thing--the wildlife park. It's well worth the journey since you can see the widest variety of wildlife in Nepal.

I recommend the jeep safari as part of your package; your best chances for seeing more wildlife will come from this experience. You cover more ground and a wider variety of terrain--for example, we saw 7 rhinos during the same time other people taking an elephant ride saw just one rhino that was mostly obscured. Besides, many parks worldwide are shutting down elephant rides for wildlife concerns. Chitwan will continue these rides as long as there is a tourist demand (it is declining a bit currently).

The rarest animal we saw during the jeep safari was a sloth bear. Although we didn't see tigers or leopards, we did see their footprints during a walking safari. We also saw a number of crocodiles and a gavial during a 45 minute canoe ride.

Another highlight to experience at Chitwan is a local Taru cultural music and dance show. This is one way tourists can actively preserve this unique and valuable Nepali culture.

Chitwan is a World Heritage Site and supports healthy populations of Indian Rhinoceros, Mugger Crocodiles, Gavials (fish-eating crocodiles), and many other species that are easy to see, as well as tigers and leopards that are more elusive. This is certainly at the top of the list of outstanding national parks of Asia, judging from its management, accessibility, rich wildlife, and tourism infrastructure. A wonderful adventure is guaranteed. But perhaps more important, Chitwan is also arguably Asia's best demonstration of how to bring the benefits of nature to the local people; they have become the leaders in providing tourism services, freely drawing on their knowledge and insights to enable the visitor to enjoy their park. As a result, the wildlife has prospered. A wonderful experience!
